ISLAMABAD: PTI Chairman Imran Khan and former Pakistan captain Imran Khan expressed concern over ongoing war of words between Javed Miandad and Shahid Afridi.
“It is unfortunate to hear what has happened between the two. Miandad was a man of crisis during our playing days and Shahid Afridi too has great fan following,” Khan told senior SAMAA anchorperson Nadeem Malik in an exclusive interview on Monday.
“It is very damaging. The two shouldn’t have indulged in trading insults publicly,” he said.

Afridi, who has represented Pakistan in approximate 400 ODIs, and about a 100 T20s, has finally decided to send a legal notice to Miandad on Thursday, according to sources.
The spate of words between the two began when Boom Boom Afridi made a comment on the legendary cricketer saying Miandad had always had an issue with money.
To which Miandad hit Afridi back with match-fixing allegations.
According to sources, Afridi and his lawyers are going through video clips and will send the notice after the end of public holiday this week.
“Afridi and his lawyer are watching clips of Miandad and his allegation thoroughly, and will be sending the required legal notice on October 13 as the offices remain close on 9th and 10th of Muharram.
